The foundations of CR Webster & Associates began almost thirty years ago, when two very young Toowoomba electricians and brothers, Charles and David Webster began working together in outback Australia, upgrading the electrical installations at isolated rural homesteads in readiness for the first grid connections. The rural electrification work extended over a huge area of Queensland and the Northern Territory, from Cunnamulla to Winton, Katherine to Clermont, and Tambo to Bowen.
Charles Webster then worked on oil rigs in central Australia and offshore in Bass Straight, and also completed Honours Bachelor Degree and a Masters Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Engineering Management at the Queensland University of Technology. In 1992 he began a career in the Queensland electricity industry working as a Construction & Commissioning Engineer, and Electrical Plant Engineer for the Queensland Electricity Corporation, and eventually Chief Electrical Engineer for Tarong Energy.
David Webster completed with distinction an Associate Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Southern Queensland. He then worked for many years for two State Government Authorities in Queensland and the Northern Territory, as an Electronic Technical Officer and Technical Manager for a number of infrastructure and R&D projects. With a passion for R&D he contributed to the successful development and deployment of complex equipment and assets designed to help the authorities to achieve their goals of continuous improvement in the areas of pavement construction, pavement asset management, road safety and traffic coordination.
In 2007 the Webster brothers once again began working together, now based in south east Queensland. They enjoy applying their collective 50+ years experience in electrical engineering, asset management and project management, to deliver technical solutions to a variety of customers, and post graduate training and lecturing to several major Queensland Universities, UQ, QUT and CQU.
This great depth and breadth of experience gained from many years of hands-on work across a wide variety of situations, as well as the extensive network of business colleagues from first class professional, technical and craft organisations allows CR Webster & Associates to quickly and economically resolve our clients requirements.
